The result: A smoky, sticky, flame-broiled package of goodness you can only find during the summer months.
But as August slowly bleeds into September, the realization dawns on us grill enthusiasts that only a few short months remain before the "Q" is put away for the cold season. Don’t get too down, though: We’ve selected a handful of cool grilling tools to help make the end of your barbecue season a memorable one.

The built-in LED flashlight in these extra-long stainless steel tongs goes right to where you’re grilling and fires up at the touch of a button.
Fruit Smoker Woods
